Imagine leaving the confines of student housing to sign off on a bigger jail than you just got out of. Try idealizing your first legitimate apartment and the ways you’ll accent it, the place you’ll cohabitate with friends you’ve made, only to be plagued with rat infestations, roaches, broken...

New Orleans is known for plenty of things, but cold weather is most certainly not one of them. So on Wednesday, Jan. 13, when snow was in the forecast, it was difficult to be sure how to handle it. Many problems arise with freezing temperatures, something few southerners are equipped to deal with. “The...

Anyone on campus who could not evacuate before the storm was sent into lockdown in Biever Hall, Loyola’s freshmen-only residence...

As I am sure you can tell by the purple, green and gold everywhere, Mardi Gras season has arrived. This may be your first experience with Mardi Gras, or maybe you are a seasoned parade goer with strong opinions about the neutral ground side versus sidewalk side. As a New Orleans local and an avid parade...

On Sat, Oct. 21, I wandered around an office complex in Metairie until I found what I was looking for: a professional testing center. It was a place I hadn’t known existed until I registered for the GRE, and when I entered the office I knew why. It was freezing cold and incredibly sterile, as if germs...

I’ll succinctly state it: I love New Orleans. I was raised an hour north just five minutes’ drive post-Causeway but, for me, New Orleans is home. This is largely attributed to Loyola. From the kind university faculty and staff to the critical worldview I attained as a student, Loyola left an...

I’m not going to sugar coat it: eating healthy is hard. Right now, it is 4:00 p.m. and all I’ve eaten today is a banana, coffee and a root beer. This is not something that I should be proud of, but as a college student, where time is precious and money is limited, sometimes the easiest th...

As much as I’ve come to love New Orleans and its culture as my home away from home, Miami, my hometown, will always have a special place in my heart. Not a day goes by where I don’t find myself longing for the beach and occasional sea breeze, but those are easy to do without. What I can’t do...

Filed under The Wolf

Dishwashing in a restaurant is a position that’s difficult to romanticize. You’re the bottom rung on the ladder, a decomposer of the kitchen, subsisting solely to blast oil scum from pans with hot water and chemicals and return utensils back to sender. More than a few times while running my...
